Today's moron is Heidi Cullen, a "climatologist" who makes here living hosting a program on The Weather Channel called "The Climate Code." Ms. Cullen has a vested interest in human-generated global warming, because otherwise she'd be reporting the weather in Boise, Idaho.
Ms. Cullen has made a name for herself of late by calling for the American Meteorological Society to pull accreditation for your local television weather guy/gal if he or she doesn't pay homage to the belief that humans are casuing global warming.
That's silly, but it doesn't arise to the high standards to which we here at Hoystory like to hold our Moron o' the day. No, it's this statement that wins Ms. Cullen the award.
"It's like allowing a meteorologist to go on-air and say that hurricanes rotate clockwise and tsunamis are caused by the weather," she wrote in her internet blog. "It's not a political statement... it's just an incorrect statement."
The storms that are called hurricanes in the northern hemisphere do rotate clockwise, when they're in the southern hemisphere.
It's called the Coriolis effect.
Ms. Heidi Cullen -- Moron o' the day.
